31 Days of Real Homeschooling Day One


I’m joining Nesting Place’s 31 Days Meme.   I haven’t posted for several months because the pressure of living and recording blog worthy material got to me.  So this month, I am jumping back into blogging with daily posts.   And of course, I wanted to start off with a pretty 31 Days button, but that hasn’t happened yet!   (Give me time!) (The time is now--9 days in!)   The posts might not be pretty, picture worthy, or  imitation worthy, but they will be real.
So, let’s get real.   This morning:

15 minutes ago we should have started school.

We are expecting our ES (Education Specialist) to arrive at 9:00, so I spent the last 10 minutes of my life getting rid of the rotten tomato smell that has permeated our home.  

Our home is a mess.  

I have put in a load of laundry and watered the plants on my balcony.  

I’m signing off to do a quick pick-up of our living room.

I will post again tonight to let all know how our real day of homeschooling went!

  1. I've missed you. Welcome back! What is an education specialist? Are you using a cover charter or is this a requirement from your state? Eager to read your 31 dyas

  2. Nice to "see" you again! Looking forward to your "31 days." :-)

  3. Thanks for the welcome back! ES is an education specialist which is who oversees our learning plan each month. We are using a charter school. Our state does not require any thing from us. I choose to use the charter school for the accrediation it provides.
